How we serve

We provide practical resources, training, and mentoring opportunities to youth leaders and their youth, and for local Pathfinder and Adventurer Clubs.

  • Adventurer Club
    • Serve an intercultural community of children from pre K through 4th grade and their parents and care–givers through a holistic ministry
    • Offer instructional curriculum, family enrichment, supplementary resources, and volunteer training from within the Seventh-day Adventist® philosophy
  • Adventist Christian Fellowship
    • Our mission is to build Christian fellowship chapters on non-Adventist campuses that honor God and nurture the spiritual lives of students. Engage students in the mission of the Church through relational evangelism and Christ-like student fellowships. Empower local ACF chapters, churches, and sponsors through pastoral support, professional training, and access to resources.
    • Adventist Christian Fellowship North American Division [ACF/NAD] is the official umbrella organization for Adventist ministry on college and university campuses not owned by the Seventh-day Adventist® church in the U.S., Canada, and Bermuda. 
  • Pathfinder Club
    • Provide resources and support for the local club
  • Public High School and Campus Ministry
    • We offer campus clubs on academy and public high school campuses where students learn to live for Jesus and where they spend most of their waking hours—on campus at school.
